Winnipeg's Indigenous Accord Welcomes Additional Partners
WINNIPEG – Today, over 40 additional local organizations, businesses, groups, and individuals joined the City in their commitment to the ongoing Journey of Reconciliation in Winnipeg by formally becoming partners of Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord at the second annual signing ceremony, bringing the total number of Accord partners to over 120 and demonstrating a strong community commitment to Winnipeg’s Journey of Reconciliation.
“Thank you to every organization, and every individual, who has become a partner to Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “And thank you to every new partner joining us today. Your commitment, and your independent initiatives to promote truth and reconciliation are a great source of hope for our city. Together, as partners, we are reclaiming a spirit of peace and partnership and working together to address the Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls to Action.”
The Accord guides our shared commitment to the Journey of Reconciliation, and is rooted in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 Calls to Action and is guided by the commitments and principles contained in the Accord.
As a living document, the Accord is an ongoing responsibility accepted by signatories, who through becoming partners to the Accord agree to report the success of their commitment to reconciliation and their future goals on an annual basis.
Collaboration with other organizations and groups, across sectors, and with Indigenous organizations, governments, and individuals is essential to the ongoing Journey of Reconciliation in Winnipeg to make our city a better place to live based on mutual respect, equal opportunity, and hope.
The City accepts partner applications throughout the year. To view the Accord and submit your request to become a partner, please visit winnipeg.ca/indigenousaccord
